I just got off the phone with the <wonderful> folks at the College Board. I am so confused! I don't WANT to go the accommodations route -- we homeschool, and finding a school that will allow my kid to take AP exams with accommodations will be an interesting trick! But given what the fellow at the College Board said, I don't see how any D kid can take College Board exams without accommodations! Me: My daughter wears an insulin pump. Can she wear it without accommodations? College Board: No. Me: Can she test her blood sugar between sections in the room? College Board: No Me: When and how can she test her blood sugar? College Board: Outside the room in the 5-minute break after sections 2, 4, and 6 Me: Can she eat between sections? College Board: No. She can only eat after sections 2, 4, and 6 outside the room. When my older daughter (non-D) took the SAT, she nearly didn't make it back to the testing room in time because there was a line at the bathroom. So how can a diabetic kid take the SAT without accommodations? And why oh why do we subject our kids (not just D kids) to this round peg in a square hole process? My husband is diabetic and happily checks his blood sugar during meetings, etc.
